Jeanne Georgianna Talbot Normandeau

WATERVILLE – Jeanne Georgianna Talbot Normandeau, 80, died at Woodlands Senior Living of Waterville on Feb. 11, 2021 after a long illness.

She was born July 19, 1939 in Winslow, the only daughter of the late Cyril and Carmeline Talbot. She was also predeceased by her husband, Roland Normandeau.

She is survived by her brothers, Jim Talbot of Carabassett and John Talbot of Concord, N.C.; and two nephews, Peter and Cameron Talbot.

Jeanne attended Mount Merici Academy and upon graduation, attended nursing school at St. Mary’s in Lewiston for three years, where she became interested in teaching. She worked for one year at Sister’s Hospital in Waterville before deciding to attend Boston College, where she received a baccalaureate and master’s degree in nursing. She moved to Portland and worked for the State of Maine as a community health nurse for two years before accepting her first teaching position at Mercy Hospital. After only a year she was offered a full time teaching position at the University of Southern Maine, where she taught for 27 years, during which time she also completed her doctoral degree at Boston University.

Jeanne and Roland were married in 1976 and lived in Portland until moving back to Winslow in 2004. When they weren’t traveling around the U.S., Canada and Europe, they enjoyed having horses, dogs, spending time in their garden and getting reacquainted with her 26 first cousins.

Due to Covid, Jeanne’s memorial will be held at a later date.

Arrangements are under the care and direction of Veilleux and Redington Funeral Home, 8 Elm St., Waterville.
